A light, subtle BC white wine made from Viognier grapes. Lightly floral and some white peach. Nice aperitif or companion to mild goat cheese.

Floral and tropical fruit aromas give way to peach, lemon and pineapple flavors. An excellent pairing with seafood.
|Tania Thomas - CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Dry and medium bodied, it delivers abundant green apples and lemon drops on the nose. Tropical fruit and grapefruit follow on the palate with a whiff of floral notes. Vibrant acidity, well balanced. Fantastic with seafood and soft, pungent cheeses.
|Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Light yellow color With powerful notes of melon, grapefruit, pineaple and floral.
That's a medium bodied wine, long on the palate and well balanced.
Enjoy with an assortment of chesses or pair it with grilled swordfish with fruits salsa.
Drink now or cellar up to 2018
Serve it at 10-11 degrees
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of apple, pear, honey, and cream with a oily feel in the mouth. Paired nicely with a tangy-style Salt Spring Island Garlic Chevre, but not great with the creamy ash-rind Grey Owl goats cheese. Oily wine and oozy cheese meant too much greasiness in the mouth, and bitter rind of cheese dampened any fruit flavours leaving the wine tasting "hot". Would pair nicely with another tangy cheese such as a feta.
|Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Pale gold, showing citrus, white pepper/ginger spice, apple on the nose. Medium acidity, round palate, creamy texture, apple, herb , spice, medium finish has a bit of an alcohol note. A good choice for sushi/maki rolls. Tasted June 6, 2015
